Horse racing in June 2012

Have searched and cannot find any specific dates for the June races. My partner and I are thinking about a holiday in June and would like to include a trip to the races. Does anyone know the dates of the two races which seem to be in June?

As shown on the link below, the dates of the Race Days in June are not yet fixed. As a member of the Turf Club I can assure you that regrettably this is normal !!! All I can suggest is that you keep an eye on the website and hope the dates you choose include at least one of them.

It is also worth noting, that unlike the UK, racing can be postponed to the following week at the drop of a hat if heavy rain has made the track too wet, when it has been known for jockeys to refuse to ride !!!

Sorry I can't be of more help at this stage. Good Luck with your choice of dates and if I hear anything I will post.

Thanks for your replies.Know what you mean about the races being cancelled at short notice. My partner and I got to the Garrision on the day of the races one year and were the only people there. Asked a member of staff and told it had been cancelled

Before you set off to the races in future, phone the office on 427 2087 to make sure Racing is still on . Hope you get at least a day, and win lots of money.

Sorry , my apolgies, yes that's correct, I must have been looking at the number of the race day by mistake. Races are indeed ( subject to weather) the 31st March, and the 14th and 28th of April.
